Forever, Together Alone Tag!

I want to thank inkgirlandwords for nominating me for this awesome tag!! She is so super smart and down to earth I can’t believe she’s still a teenager! She is definitely one of my favorite most awesome bloggers so please do check out her blog I guarantee it’s worth your follow!

The Rules:♡

  1. Thank the person who started this tag (Luna) and link the blog back!
  2. Answer the questions the person has set up for you! (#7 Stays The Same Forever!)
  3. Tag some peeps back who you think or know are not in a relationship or have a crush!
  4. Post your favourite picture you have on your desktop! (idk why just do it XD)

Do you a movie/book crush you wish was real:

Definitely Mr. Darcy!!

What are some problems you think come with relationships:

Ummm well I’m no expert at relationships but I think the biggest problem personally for me would be that I am very impatient sometimes and I can be very stubborn so it would be hard for me to adjust and try to be more understanding. I also have a very hard time opening up to people and letting people in which would probably be hard for my partner because they can’t really tell how I’m feeling about things.

Would you ever want to have a kid:

Inkgirlandwords says: I don’t think I would sorry I can’t resist answering my own quesitons sometimes XD

At the place I am in right now in my life I don’t think I want kids any time soon and I don’t think I’ll ever feel like I want to have kids but you never know! People change every day and maybe in like ten years I’ll think differently. It’s not that I don’t like kids because I do but I just wouldn’t want the responsibility of raising one because I wouldn’t be able to take care of it properly and I don’t think that’s fair.

Do you like to write poetry:

Yes definitely! It’s like an outlet for me!

Do you want to get married/ be in a relationship:

Not right now but maybe someday.

Do you think romantic love is worth everything and you should give up everything for it:

No I think TV and books tend to romanticize things and make it seem like love is worth it but realistically it’s really not worth it sometimes and you have to realise that when you’re in love especially initially when you’re at that crazy in love stage things may seem euphoric but in the long run they may change drastically and you may really end up giving up so much. Plus, people fall out of love all the time (it’s sad but it’s true) and I think you have to accept that you may not always be together so is giving up everything really worth it?

Are you in a relationship/have a crush or are you a lonely bean like me:

Lol the only crushes I have are on famous people who don’t know I exist!

Book Review: And Baby Makes Two

*Warning: Contains Spoilers*

“Getting what you want is only the beginning.”

I finally read And Baby Makes Two by Dyan Sheldon. This mildly light hearted yet extremely realistic and hard hitting books is one of my favorites. Dyan Sheldon has a way of connecting with her audience and really being able to describe a teenage mind and life. This book is about a fifteen year old girl, Lana, who makes some seriously bad decisions and ends up going through a much deserved hard time. Unlike most books to do with teenagers this isn’t a love story, it doesn’t make teenagers look like deep, misunderstood young adults and it isn’t afraid to be raw. One thing I have noticed with YA books is that most of them show parents as uncaring, distant, busy or just in general misunderstanding whereas they show teenagers to be smarter, deeper, and more mature than they should be. This book turns the tables around which is nice because it’s different from what we are so used to reading.

Lana is a very petty, immature, lost, naïve and silly fifteen year old. She and her mother have a very complicated relationship which mainly seems due to a lot of miscommunication and mildly due to Lana’s stubborn and unforgiving nature. She blames her mother for pretty much everything from her bad grades to global warming. She only lets herself live in her make belief day dream because I guess she is too young and innocent to realize that the world isn’t what it seems.

On her fifteenth birthday Lana excitedly puts on a bunch of makeup and wears a very revealing and skanky dress that her mother refuses to let her wear which leads to a huge quarrel between the two. She ends up going to a burger place alone and there as she drowns in sorrow and self-pity she meets a men she thinks is “THE ONE” (foreshadow: he is an asshole).

The two date for a while and she quickly decides now that she has met the perfect man there is no need for her to bother with school (where she was failing anyway) and it was time to take her relationship to the next level. She and her boyfriend, Les, decide to have sex that is sloppy and that she definitely doesn’t enjoy. Unfortunately, she ends up pregnant however unlike literally everyone else she is absolutely thrilled and looks forward to starting, what she believes, a family with Les.

Les who is less enthusiastic about the whole situation and acts like a perfect jackass towards her and the baby. Even though he regularly wants to have sex with her, he is not ready to take any responsibility whatsoever. Lana’s mother desperately tries to tell Lana that having a baby is not as fun as Madonna makes it look. Les, on the other hand, goes on a trip to Greece (without Lana) who goes into labor and has a baby girl called Shinola.

After Lana has the baby, Les finally shows up referring to the baby as “it” and definitely not having the moving reaction Lana hoped for when he sees Shinola for the first time. He is still only interested in sex and eventually Lana finally starts to see that have a baby isn’t what the movies make it seem like. Her mother too starts to slowly stop trying so hard and begins to give up on Lana.

The ending is quite a turn from the starting but it actually makes a lot of sense, Lana learns what growing up and taking responsibility is really like and her mum learns that she needs to let go- Lana is definitely not a baby anymore.

Her

Her blonde hair shines in the sun

Her blue eyes sparkle

She is finally happy

Doing what she loves

She chose the wrong career at first

She was influenced too much

By the people around her

She met the wrong man

He never treated her right

As soon as he heard she wanted to keep the baby

He said goodbye and left

Never to be seen again

She cried and fell apart

And then she picked herself up

Her beautiful daughter now means the world to her

She went back to college

And got the degree she had always wanted

She met a handsome lover

Who always treated her right

They got married and she told him

Thank you for making me

Finally happy

 

Please

Please may I?

Asks the little girl

May I feel love

No because it will only hurt you

The voice answers

Then may I dream big

And hope to be famous someday

She asks

No because you will only end up miserable and alone

The voice replies

Can I find my own answers

Without believing everything I hear

She questions

No people will judge you for being different

The voice tells her

Should I trust people I meet

She inquires

No they are dangerous, they will only hurt you and leave

Could I love the opposite gender

And the same gender too

She asks

No you’re just confused

The voice responds

____________________________________________________________________________________

This poem is the conversation between an adult and a child. What I wanted to show here is how children are born so innocent and so full of love and hope but we wire them to be just like us. We’re so scared of losing them that we stop them from thinking their own thoughts, from being themselves, from being as free as they should be. The worst thing you can do to a person is crush their dreams because that will destroy them forever. Instead of telling children what to do we need to support them in what they’re already passionate about. Instead of steering them to a safer road we need to help them drive on the road they themselves have chosen.

“It is easier to build up a child than it is to repair an adult… choose your words wisely”

 

The Child

The child waited

As her family wept

The priest prayed by her bed

Her mother held her hand

The candle was still burning on the nightstand

Her father wiped his face with his handkerchief

The room was so bright

She couldn’t understand why

Her parents tried to console her brother

“Her suffering has ended”

“She’s in a better place”

She saw a dark figure approach her

“It’s time to leave, child”

“We must go now”

He was covered in a black robe

And no one seemed to notice him

She took his bony hand

And together they left

“I’m sorry” the figure whispered

As she turned and looked into his eyes

Into the never ending darkness

Of death

________________________________________________________________________________________________

This poem was influenced by Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief in which the story is narrated by death. It is chillingly realistic and brings out the horrors of Nazi Germany. Likewise I wanted this poem to be chillingly truthful because life isn’t always perfect and death is inevitable.

“She was one of the few souls that made me wonder what it was to live”

“It kills me sometimes, how people die”
